Like all other major (and minor) car insurance companies, GEICO offers a slew of discounts to help drivers save money on auto insurance.

It seems to be in every car insurer’s playbook these days as a motivator to get customers in the door.

But we know if can be difficult sometimes to keep up with the many discounts offered by these companies, what with their ever-changing ad campaigns.

So in an effort to simplify matters, we’ve created lists of discounts for popular insurers, with GEICO being the latest installment in the series. Read on to view our GEICO discount list.

We’ll do our best to add (and subtract) discounts when warranted. And please feel free to chime in if there’s a discount we missed.

[You can see auto insurance discounts from 21st Century, Allstate, Esurance, Mercury, and USAA as well.]

What auto insurance discounts does GEICO offer?

  • GEICO insurance discounts are abundant
  • Here are the many discounts with GEICO that you can take advantage of
  • To lower a portion or all your car insurance premium
  • Note that some can’t be combined or may not be available in certain states

ABS Discount – if your vehicle has an anti-lock braking system, you may receive 5% off just the collision portion of your car insurance costs.

Accident Free Discount – if you’ve avoided a car accident for five years, GEICO can offer up to 26% on most coverage options.

Air Bags Discount – you can save 25% for driver-side air bags and 40% for full-front seat air bags (this discount applies to med pay or PIP portion of your premium).

Anti-Theft Discount – you can also save up to 25% on the comprehensive portion of your coverage if you’ve got a built-in anti-theft system.

Daytime Running Lights Discount – you may receive a 1% discount simply for having daytime running lights installed on your car. This only applies to certain car insurance coverage types, and it’s a mere 1% so you probably won’t notice it…

Defensive Driving Discount – you may be eligible for a discount if you’ve taken part in a Defensive Driving course (we debunked this one already). But it’s worth mentioning regardless.

Driver’s Education Discount – young drivers may be able to save their parents some money by completing a driver’s education course. This can help cut down that hefty premium, and believe us, every little bit helps there!

How do you make sure you’re receiving all of the GEICO discounts available to you?

Both existing GEICO customers and prospective ones should take the time to go through the entire list of discounts to ensure they receive any and all they are eligible for. Just remember that all the discounts in the world might still result in a higher premium cost.

If you get a quote from GEICO, or already have coverage in place, you may want to take the time to comb through this list line by line to ensure you’re getting all the discounts you deserve.

Keep in mind that while discounts are generally a good thing, if you find lower auto insurance rates with a different provider that doesn’t offer discounts, you’re better off going with them.

The final price is what matters, not the discounted rate if it’s still higher than competing offers.

Additionally, these GEICO discounts may not be available in all states or by all GEICO companies.

And as noted above, many discounts only apply to small portions of your overall policy premium, so the savings many not be as substantial as they appear.

For example, if you receive a 10% premium reduction on your policy that only costs $50, that’s just $5 off. Sure, it’s still money, but you might be disappointed.

What’s the bottom line?

GEICO provides a lot of great discounts, and it’s known to offer affordable car insurance rates as well. Regardless of how many discounts you can get with an auto policy from GEICO, make sure to shop around and compare rates from other companies before you make a decision.
